Linux in Asus Terminator 2?


Hi,

Im thinking of building my second computer to barebone/sff case like
Asus Terminator T2-P but Im bit concerned about how Asus P4P8P-
mobo will work with it. Distribution that I will install is Suse 9.2.
Main worry is integrated soundboard which is ADI AD1888.
Realtek lan should work and I have GeForce 5700 for graphics.
There is only one PCI-channel and that would go to TV-card.

Anybody installed Linux to this case?

I've had DragonFlyBSD and OpenBSD in it and all worked great. Not sure about the sound though as it was a proxy/fileserver in my case :-/

A computer case has nothing to do with compatiblity of Linux. The kernel will find out what modules will be compatible with your chipset of the motherboard.

Well, case doesnt matter? really?
I thought I included mobo model code in my post.
I know that kernel will or will not support sound,
lan etc. Thats why Im asking if anybody has
experiences of this barebone.
Yes, Asus do not use any other mobo in this case.

Um ... It does when it's a custom form factor and comes with a motherboard in it ...

Yes, the kernel will probe your hardware and figure out what it can use, but the kernel has to have support for the chipset in order to run it. I believe this is what the original poster was inquiring about.

Hi,

I just wanted to inform, that I just Installed Suse 9.2 to my brand new Asus Terminator T2-P
barebone. Everything installed fine; integrated lan, card reader, soundcard.
